Brief Answer: Thank you for using HCM, I would love to help Detailed Answer: an oral temp is often slightly lower than your real temp. a rectal temp is the mot accurate (though of course it is the least comfortable to check). it is probably a little higher than what you got orally, like around 97 degrees, which is within normal range. please let me know if you have any more questions.
